    Pros

    People are good to work with. Work can sometimes be interesting. You can take ownership of your project and run with it. Not much politics.

    Cons

    Optical disc publishing industry is mature and declining so the company cannot grow much. No obvious play to move to into cloud technologies.

    Advice to Management

    Pump that optical publishing market for all it is worth but someday you have try something different or die.

  2. Great people. Mature market. No corporate culture to speak of.

    Pros

    Rimage has been doing the same thing for thirty years and, despite the market declining, they continue to get good results out of what they've got. Solid job, nice people.

    Cons

    I worked in marketing and there was not a lot of innovation in terms of how they presented themselves to the world, they're set in their ways and that's how they like it. In terms of office space and corporate culture they have a few get-togethers (mostly based around cake) but that's about it.

    Advice to Management

    Work should make you want to show up in the morning, as it stands it oftentimes feels like "Office Space" day in day out the same stuff.

    Pros

    Learn new technologies
    Good location, near to Youtube. Good restaurants

    Cons

    One of the most horrible leadership in San Bruno.
    Engineering 3 chiefs + Indian politics = disaster

    Advice to Management

    See passion in employees who work hard. Give opportunity for everyone's opinions as they as investing their lives into your company.

    Pros

    Good way to get experience if you're in a lower level position
    Co-workers
    Benefits
    New line of business is growing, interesting

    Cons

    Rapidly declining core business
    No future career opportunities if you work in the legacy business, management seems to have no intention of transitioning capable employees to the new line of business.
    Management focuses exclusively on new business to the detriment of old

    Advice to Management

    Tell employees the plan for ongoing employment in core business. We all know business is not going well.

  6. Everybody treated their co-workers with respect, dignity and professionalism.

    Pros

    The working environment was a positive one that fostered growth and teamwork. While individual achievement was strongly encouraged, the interconnected nature of the multiple levels of the organization reigned supreme. I've never worked with a more intelligent, competent executive corps.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that the space in which the company operates is a fairly small space and one that isn't necessarily an exciting one. However, the company is aggressive in pursuing contemporary solutions and innovative processes.

    Advice to Management

    Continue being fair, ethical and treating staff with respect and the company will continue to grow and thrive.

  7. Freedom in movement, lacking in direction.

    Pros

    - Great people
    - Fun products
    - Very decent benefits
    - Management cares about the people who work for them

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with people. If there's no room for advancement, let people know and let them move on if they choose to do so.

    Pros

    Work/Life balance is great and the culture is relaxed. Most people are friendly and willing to assist when they can. The vision is there for bridging the technology and company for the future. Need to exicute.

    Cons

    Weak management at the sr level and communication is not clear. Legacy personnel in many positions need to be top graded to assist this company to get to the next level. Comp packages are around the 50% mark for similar positions in the MSP market, you get what you pay for. Also need to invest some money in HQ building, as it's old, dirty, and has no character.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate personnel from a 360 degree view and Top Grade with stronger comp plans.

  11. If you need a job and to get some experience on your resume this place is okay.

    Pros

    Nice co-workers, decent benefits, good location, good work life balance.

    Cons

    Poor executive leadership (the current CEO was canned from Seagate)

    No direction with a dying product. They are currently trying to compete with all the big players (Google, Apple, Microsoft, etc.) by developing a niche product for cloud computing.

    Very old and uncomfortable office. This is basically a start up, with a high failure percentage.

    No room to move. The job you take is the job you will stay in. They bring all of their upper management and leadership in from outside the company without even looking at talent within.

    Advice to Management

    Quite being so arrogant, laying people off while giving yourselves full bonuses, and tell employees the truth when they sign on that the company is struggling and their is very limited potential for upward mobility. Rimage will die a slow death.
